  1. Mary,
    Even in the midst of the COVID-19 and our country’s chaos, there are blessings that I can, and need to, praise and thank God for. May I be more like Miriam in pausing to rejoice in God’s goodness and sing His praises. Great post!
    Blessings,

  2. In Courage,

    We would do well to follow the ACTS form of prayer. First off Adoration: Give God praise and honor for who he is as Lord over all. Simply stop & praise God for loving us, being our shelter in storms, etc. Then comes Confession: Honestly deal with the sin in your prayer life. I use this dangerous prayer: Search me. God & know my heart test me & know my anxious thoughts. See if there be any wicked way in me & lead me the way of everlasting life. Next most important: Thanksgiving: Verbalize what you’re grateful for in your life and in the world around you. Write down all the times God brought you out of trials, helped/healed people. The & only then can we offer Supplication: Pray for the needs of others and yourself. Often times we forget about Adoration, confession & thanksgiving. We jump right into supplication. May we never forget ACT part of a prayer life. It is vital to remind ourselves what God has done in the past & thank Him for that. When trials come & they will you will be ready with God at your side.

    Blessings 🙂
